Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Once you have been approved and selected a dog, you will be asked to fill out our adoption contract. This contract is very basic; one of the most important things it specifies is that if you have to give up the dog for any reason, it must return to the Oklahoma Beagle Rescue. If you have friends or family who wish to adopt the dog, they will have to go through our adoption approval process as well.
We also require an adoption fee that covers the cost of the vet care the dog has had since it has been with us. The fee is capped at $200. This fee includes spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as an adoption pack containing items such as treats or toys, and a supply of any medications that the dog may be on. You will also be provided with copies of vet records for vaccinations and any other medical treatment that your dog may have had since he or she has arrived at our rescue. (Our rescue dogs are examined by a veterinarian upon arrival at the rescue, and tested for heartworms and other parasites. While at the rescue or in approved foster homes, they stay up to date on vaccinations and flea and heartworm preventative.)
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
